Avengers: Endgame Topples Avatar
Avengers: Endgame finally did it. After almost 10 years, James Cameron’s global hit Avatar has passed on the title of the highest-grossing film. This last weekend, the superhero film passed the $2.789Bn needed to claim the crown. However, James Cameron isn’t too upset about it.
“I see you,” he tweeted, adding a picture of Iron Man surrounded by Pandoran wood sprites. “Congratulations to Avengers: Endgame on becoming the new box-office king”. Endgame, originally released in April, is the culmination of 22 films and 10 years. Following the film’s victory, directors Anthony and Joe Russo returned the favor, tweeting, “You’re a monumental reason why we fell in love with film in the first place. Thank you for always inspiring us and opening the world’s eyes to what’s possible. We can’t wait to see where you take us next.”

Cats Falls, Well, Flat.
The new Cats movie trailer released last Thursday. However, the star-filled flick’s trailer received less than enthusiastic reviews. The film placed the actor’s faces on top of computer-generated fur, as they all dance around a set that’s larger than life. Unfortunately, people didn’t receive it very well. Almost as soon as the trailer released, people took to Twitter to voice their concerns.
“I don’t know what I expected from CATS’ “digital fur technology” but the short answer is NOT this. My brain has melted. My eyes are bleeding. There is no god,” one user wrote. CATS officially releases in December.

That is why, after consulting with the cast, we all have decided this will be the final season of Will and Grace,” said creators Mutchnick, Kohan and exec producer/director Burrows in a statement.
